Copy Edit

A copy edit corrects mistakes in spelling, grammar, punctuation, and consistency. If your writing has undergone other levels of editing, it will need a copy edit, too. A copy edit is the final polish before publishing!

This is also the most affordable level.

Line Edit

A line edit clarifies the author’s voice. Your editor will reorganize sentences and paragraphs to make them clearer, indicate where something might confuse a reader, and polish the flow and tone of your writing.

Developmental Edit

A developmental edit helps with the structure and form of your writing. While it can be difficult to see major changes to your writing, remember the developmental editor wants the best for your writing, just like you do.
